For the second year in a row it's Home For The Holla'Days which means good people, great music, and doing some exceptional DIY for the organization Aid To Children Without Parents:

ACWP’s Saving in Children Crisis ("SCIC") program was first established in 2004 to help economically disadvantaged and high-risk Vietnamese children from "children trafficking." In the poorest area of Southeast Asia , children are at risk of being or have been a victim of "children trafficking" where they’ve been kidnapped, sold, traded or tricked into child slavery and/or prostitution. The SCIC program is targeting children from the age range from 5 to 14 years old. These children come from extremely poor families in remote areas along the border of Cambodia such as and Svay Pak and Phnom Penh and rural or metropolitan cities in Southern Vietnam such as An Giang, Song Be, Kien Giang, Dong Thap, Can Tho and even Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon) in Vietnam. ACWP founded SCIC program after discovering a small village in Cambodia that was formed by a group of poor Vietnamese immigrants whose families migrate to Cambodia in search for work. For some desperate families, parents resulted to selling their children to brothels.

ACWP aims to help children who may be lured into sex trafficking. As a result, ACWP has developed various programs to provide immediate solution and long-term commitment to preventing children from being a victim of human trafficking crime; i.e., ranges from providing education, or vocational training and financial assistance.
